What would Cody's music sound like?
« on: February 05, 2011, 11:13:12 AM »
Ever noticed when you visit someone oftentimes they will have music playing in the background.  This morning I was playing around and came up with a strain that just made me feel like I was walking through the beaded arched doorway of Cody's pad.  The experience was complete with some lava lamps, black light posters and the hint of ginseng incense in the air.

FYI - I am not the musicians.

(you mean this is your recording/playing? very impressive.)

it wouldn't be out of place for Cody; i've heard all sorts of music coming from his nest. very apt for a Cody, kicking-back type of weekend.

Agreed...however

Reminds me of an circa 1990's american sit-com introduction (not unlike Seinfeld or similar)...or could even be used in porn tbh lmao...


Cool music though...is it you playing CT?

Yes and no.  I put the musical "legos" (samples) together, but the individual "playing" is not mine.  All I did was create the layers, choose the instruments, style and place the clips, but it was mostly random.  I just got lucky.  I seem to have a good talent for taking the talents of others and modifying them, like I did with the old Johnny River's song for my tribute to Perry Mowbray for his outstanding contribution to NANY.

The name of the the program is Music Maker by Magix.  

Thanks for the flowers.  :-*

ah, right. interesting. not as impressive as you playing it but i appreciate how getting the right blend of samples isn't necessarily a simple task either.

if there's ever a DC podcast again - i can imagine this to be a good tune to use as the intro (or something).

If you think it would work, I can work on it some more by polishing it up a little?

Pretty awesome CT!

Also disagree it's less impressive for you not playing the actual loops.

Looping is it's own thing, with its own aesthetic Takes as much effort to learn how to use (and get something decent sounding) out of Fruity Loops, Acid, or MM, as it does to play an instrument IMHO.

So "way cool" AFAIC. Do us up some more!  :Thmbsup:

-----

Addendum: also +1 on Music Maker. I've got Acid and FL and MM. I seldom use them.  But of the three I find I like MM best for some odd reason. Great loop composition tool. And terrific "bang for the buck."

Thanks!  I was actually targeting the late 60's, early 70's rock style interludes, but I'll take what I can get.  ;)

I don't know about a sit-com, but either a cop show, or a porno would be a good fit.

It's definitely cool ... Only thing I play is the radio. ;)

Ok, per your request.  Not exactly what I was trying to originally put together, but it sounded interesting even if a little dark.  FYI - I tried to explore different ideas and tried to spotlight the < 100 Hz where I could.  ;)

Enjoy!
